ELP Business Connections Implements Severa Professional Services Automation (PSA) System

Cranston, Rhode Island (PressExposure) June 25, 2009 -- ELP Business Connections has customers from many different industries, such as manufacturing, distribution, trading companies and professional services organizations.

According to ELP Business Connections’ Senior Partner Erkki Pasonen, before implementing Severa project management solution, the firm was relying on two separate software applications for managing business operations.

Says Pasonen, “Earlier, we were using Visma Software’s Nova system for billing, and Projectplace for project management. Our need was to combine these separate systems into one single system to enhance work productivity.”

The consulting network that operates globally creates special challenges for professional services automation. “We required our PSA system to be an online, always on application that was accessible from anywhere in the world,” noted Pasonen. “Our consultants work in several time zones, from Washington to Shanghai. We needed a solution that enables 24/7 virtual operations regardless of time and place. The SaaS-service that Severa offers is an excellent choice when considering this requirement.”

According to Erkki Pasonen, ELP Business Connections will resell the Severa PSA application in the near future. “Besides using Severa to support our own business, we plan to resell Severa internationally.”

Severa enables its customers to manage customers, projects, work time and billing easily and efficiently with one system. Severa users are professional services organizations in the fields of management consulting, advertising, architecture, engineering and IT services.
